Depends on where the theses were published, now doesn't it? :P

It implied that a lot of the training facilities for the RHN are located there too, as she gets crudités for greatly improving the standard of training.


They reward Shannon by feeding her appetizers? We all knew the author was a great cook, so that's absolutely brilliant.

There's nothing to say that the ships have the full navigation download while working up at Bolthole, and there's even less to say that they don't use a "pilot" to deploy to Haven.

So, is there any chance, these thesis were a) published somethere at Mesa and, if that's the case, b) survived Houdini, especially its last act? :)

Still doesn't solve the minor tactical issue of invading through a defended worm hole terminus, does it? Nor does it answer the other part of thr invasion route issue: Where in N space is the other side of the teminus.

I keep wondering how long it will be before it occurs to the scientists that that the failure of the wormhole survey was NOT due to some natural cause. It should be obvious that if the Manties have wormhole forts, then someone else could have wormhole defenses as well.

And the way you tell the difference between a WH which destroys anyone who goes through it and a WH where you get destroyed once you get through it is?

The odds are that any traffic from Darius involves ships that don't formally exist outside of that traffic, though they might well have the ID of actual ships. Or otherwise will be very difficult to trace. Somehow I doubt you are going to get the active cooperation of the people who are working with the MA to get uncooked records etc.


So let's say you find an uncharted developed system. What's next? You are going to do what?

I predict you'll go to make contact and never ever leave
